There is much care taken here and it shows. The room was restful and comfortable.Very clean. Hot showers. Friendly owner. They are not serving breakfast, but no problem. There is a fab cafe right there called Mick and Jimmy'sthat served the best coffee we had in Ireland, (we were there 24 days!) plus great food.

My friend and I stayed here Saturday night. The location is super and within walking distance to all the local pubs and restaurants. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable, I had a great nights sleep. The host was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Kenmare.

We had 3 rooms for our family's 1st trip to Ireland. Located right in the heart of Kenmare, we were able to enjoy much of what the town offered. Very clean, super comfy beds, showers with plenty of pressure and hot water, towel warmers, and homey appointments. Great new restaurant on ground floor, which had great breakfasts without leaving the... More

Victoria Guesthouse is right in the middle of Kenmare (might not be ideal for anybody bothered by traffic noise). There is limited & restricted parking in front of the guest house. We parked around the corner in a public car park (free; opposite a petrol station, next to Garda). If the B&B proprietor is not at the reception area, there... More

We stayed here on June 28-29, 2015. This was a great and cost-effective stop during our tour of Ireland to see the sites and to play golf that we highly recommend. Admittedly, parking is limited near the guesthouse. Why? Because the location is quaint and awesome, with shops, restaurants, pubs and a nice golf course (Kenmare) within a 3-4 block... More

We took Rick Steves' advice and stayed in Kenmare rather than Killarney, and we're glad we did. Kenmare is a small, picturesque town with many restaurants, pubs and shops lining the two main streets. Virginia's is on one of those streets and is perfectly located for exploring the town. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but the room was just... More

Pleasant guest house. No parking, but we found a place on the street, right in front of virginia's. They no longer serve breakfast, but there is a very nice cafe across the street, the Bella Vita, which has a nice menu at reasonable prices. Virginia's is right in town and convenient to the southern entrance to the Ring of Kerry.... More

A couple weeks before we arrived we were notified that breakfast was no longer included. We were greeted by a kid who showed us our room, he was not the most helpful but told us what we needed to know. We didn't see Neil too much, just at check out and briefly in the lounge. Our room was very small... More

Definitely deserves the high rating. Stayed here for 1 night a couple of weeks ago and found the owner Neil exceptionally helpful and easy going. The place was clean, comfortable and a very reasonable price. Room had a comfy king bed, couch and was actually quite spacious. We were overlooking the street but noise was not an issue at all....
